Dr. Bruce welcomes you back to the Levity Zone! This is the third and last audience Q&A session for Ojai Salon number two (podcast 13). We continue on late into that night of June 2013 with Dennis, Jeff and Dr. Bruce delving deeply into the influence of the mad mesmeric monkey on civilization. The mesmeric power of the mostly male guru, the religious sect, the business or government honcho and other so-called leaders may be one of the greatest diversions in history from our path to personal freedom and to making a better world by 2050. Where did this all come from? Perhaps there was a fully female centered world of 200,000 years ago before history's greatest secret was revealed: the secret of how a baby was really conceived? Did our first conscious mother count the moons and revealed that knowledge? With that knowledge did the first patriarchal manic male monkey wrest power from Eve, kill the sacred kudu, and kidnap the future child, heading north with the spear of power and blood lust?
Is the humility and honesty of a Ram Dass, the growing circles of visionary women, and other rising voices of sanity a portent of a healthier way to handle our primate need to follow? Would the return of a world grounded on elder women finally tame the mad mesmeric monkey while bringing out the best in him (or her)? In the 21st Century will we finally witness the waning of male blood lust as he puts down the spear? We thank that restless monkey for walking the world spreading the genes of our mitochondrial mother but now need him to come home to the calm shores and warm hearth of the women who gave him life. Join us for future salons and continue the exploration of this story. Music for the second Ojai Salon series was provided by Steve Murtaugh.
